25911 With the formation of the party in England, MENEZES undertook that on arrival he would distribute the party's land in equal shares and would do his best to settle any quarrels or complaints that may arise. Moreover everyone in the party solemnly agreed to Bear this motto in our hearts. "To do to each other as we would wish others to do to us and that the Sabbath shall be kept holy and all manner of work desisted from and that lying and swearing shall be considered as a Breach of our Articles."

Richard BOWLES was herding some of his troublesome cattle, his stentorian voice swearing and cursing, a passing missionary listened and then proceeded to rebuke him for his use of bad language. Bowles felt terribly ashamed as he remembered the undertaking that he had agreed upon while in England prior to sailing to Algoa Bay. He apologised and asked the missionary, Mr MUNRO, if before he moved on, he would kindly hold a service for those close by. At this service, held at the home of Mr & Mrs Thomas EASTLAND, BOWLES felt "strangely warmed" and not long thereafter he rode into Grahamstown to ask Mr Munro to hold regular services at Kariega. This request was out of the question but what MUNRO decided to do was to arrange for the newly arrived Rev DAVIES to do duty. This was then the first rural Baptist Church gathering for Europeans in the Colony.
Richard BOWLES, his wife Elizabeth and their daughter Ester were the first recorded Baptisms in the Kariega community.
In a letter written in 1833 to the Baptist Mission Society in London, Rev DAVIES states,"I have one station in the country called Kariega which I supply once a fortnight. The seed has fallen on good ground. Three from thence have already been baptised. Some of the individuals referred to above used to make the hills echo with their drunken revels. Now the wilderness and the solitary place are glad for them."

In 1846 came the War of the Axe and during the conflict no religious gatherings were held for more than 6 months. In July 1849 John GEARD and William DAVIES rode from Grahamstown, and found the settlers eager for services. A lay-preacher's plan was drawn up and James BAINES and John WEBBER served as lay preachers under the guidance of the two ministers.
Hay & the Church
Rev A HAY, who had settled in Grahamstown, came to Kareiga as often as possible and his devotion to his followers in the area never wavered even though on many occasions he had to walk some 30 miles to preach his sermon. The Settlers, who had returned and had laid down their rifles now took up their trowels and under the direction of Rev. HAY once more began with the construction of their church building. While the church was being completed services were held in Richard BOWLES' house.
Dedication of Church
By December 1854 the humble church had been completed and furnished. The building, with mud floor and thatch roof, was finally dedicated at a ceremony at which Charles WEBBER'S son John led the singing playing his flute. Thus over the door of the church two dates are shown 1834 - 1854. Had the church been completed by the former date, 1834, it would have been the oldest established church building in the Baptist Union of South Africa.

Daniel Webber
Source Doc: Cape Archives Source: DOC; Vol No: 4/1/74 Ref: 9
Mortgage Bond dated 26 Mar 1876, Graham’s Town
Summary: Daniel Webber of Vaalvley, District of Albany, takes out a second Mortgage on perpetual quitrent land situate in the District of Albany, Fieldcornetcy of Lower Bushmens’ River now called Spring Farm; Hare Wood measuring 450 morgen and 30 square roods. He becomes indebted to John Edwin Wood and Thomas Wood trading as Wood Bros for the sum of 250 Pounds. A Deed of Transfer and the conditions of payment and interest are stated and the solicitor concerned is Henry Matthew of Cape Town. Spring Farm was originally owned by Richard and Elizabeth Bowles, 1820 settlers. Their joint Will names John Webber, a brother of Daniel as co-executor with their son Richard Bowles. Of course each of their children received a share of their land, so this portion of Spring Farm was probably the inheritance of Daniel’s wife, Maria Eliza Amos who was a grandchild of theirs – probably having inherited a portion of the land left to her father, Thomas Amos, child of Elizabeth Amos/Bowles.

The farm Harewood situated at the mouth of the Fish River was one of two farms settled by the Baillie and Crause families in 1820. John Baillie was the leader of Baillie’s party which came in 1819 on board the Chapman. The second farm owned by John Baillie was Hopewood. Daniel Webber had somehow acquired a portion of this original farm. One of the many Bowles descendants married a son of Thomas Wood so it is likely that the families knew each other.
